This very document is Awesomsticks’ 100th post. I’ve never written 100 posts for anything. Ever. I’ve had several blogs throughout my life and they’ve never made it to 100. Most rarely made it to ten.
However, Awesomsticks has been the project I’ve been preparing for for all this time. I feel like I’ve finally found a subject that I can write about consistently and remain engaged with the material enough to like it and promote it. It’s been a slow start, but this year I committed to turning Awesomsticks into a thing and adjusted its content course. This adjustment and the commitment to writing something every weekday has turned into more success than I could’ve imagined.
Currently, Awesomsticks has received more views and visitors in the first 35 days of 2020 than it did of all of 2019. I never imagined this many people would be interested in something I wrote. Perhaps it’s a bit of Imposter Syndrome. Either way, 2020 is projected to be a massive year for Awesomsticks.
I’ve always dreamed of making writing my job. I love to write, I love journalism and I love tabletop RPGs. Combining the three has been the best idea I’ve had and the content output shows it. I want Awesomsticks to be people’s favorite source of news and game guides on the internet and I’m willing to put forth the effort to make it so.
With all this being said, in the coming months I have planned on exploring funding options so I can make my dream a true reality. For all those who have read and enjoyed my content this past month, I hope that I made enough of an impression on you that you would at least consider helping funding Awesomsticks. We have a Ko-Fi currently if you feel so inclined, but I think a more robust funding option might be more effective down the road.
Thank you all for making Awesomsticks your source for news and gaming advice for tabletop RPGs. You have no idea how happy I get when I see so many people engaging with our content. Here’s to a prosperous 2020.
